The burning of yard waste (i.e. leaves, grass clippings, brush, etc.) is illegal in most areas of Stark County. What can be done with it?
DROP OFFS – Many sites throughout Stark County accept yard waste FREE OF CHARGE all year long! Follow this link for details – http://www.timetorecycle.org/recycling/yard-wastestark.php
CURBSIDE – Some municipalities pick up leaves at the curb every fall. Watch your local newspaper or call your city of residence to see if this option is available to you.
MULCHING – Mulch your leaves by mowing them. Mulching helps release nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium into the soil and can improve the overall health of your lawn.
